How Louver Shop Shutters Boosts Energy Efficiency

Louver Shop Shutters’s window treatments are designed with both style and functionality in mind. Allowing you to control the amount of sunlight entering your home, reducing the need for artificial lighting during the day. Additionally, our window treatments provide an extra layer of insulation, helping to regulate indoor temperatures by keeping your home cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

Eligibility for the Tax Credit

To qualify for the Energy Efficiency Tax Credit, certain criteria must be met. Louver Shop’s LouverWood™ Plantation Shutters and Duette Honeycomb Shades meet the necessary standards for energy efficiency. This certification ensures that the shutters have been independently tested and verified to meet strict energy performance guidelines set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

When you purchase select energy-efficient window treatments, you can earn 30% of the purchase price back in the form of a tax credit, up to a maximum annual amount of $1,200 for the qualifying tax year.

How to Claim the Tax Credit

To claim the federal energy tax credit, ensure that you purchase qualifying products between January 1 and December 31 of the qualifying tax year. Keep your original purchase invoice and/or proof of payment, as these documents are crucial for the next step.

Your Louver Shop Shutters consultant will provide you with a certificate confirming the eligibility of the items you purchased. Simply print out this certificate and your sales invoice and/or proof of payment and take them to your tax professional when filing your tax returns.
